Colin's Godson - Never Mind Sigur Ros, Here's Colin Godson GOD loves clever-clogs indie boys. Or they wouldn't keep appearing the way they do.
Whether it's the Toy Dolls, Half Man Half Biscuit, or even The Housemartins, there's always been groups who can play but just want to have fun.
The duo features Joe from The Plimptons and a man supposedly from Iceland named Ed. Rather like Rik from The Young Ones, it's all comically right-on.
Paul Weller's Fantastic Tardis Adventure sees the "Modfather" coming across a Tardis and seeing Jesus, who "helped him with his songwriting".
On The Day I Was Paul McCartney has the singer turning into a "scouser while shopping at Sainsbury's". Other songs include an ode to Marmite - all done at 100mph.

They play Red Dog Music, Grassmarket, Edinburgh, on Sunday. Short Term Memories is out on Monday.
